Raspberry Flat Carpark can be used for camping for self-contained campers only.
There are toilets on site for the public to use while using the tracks.
Raspberry Flat is approx. 60 min drive from Wanaka township toward the Mt Aspiring National Park and 50% of this drive is on an unsealed road. There are also a few fords to navigate that are generally OK. But be cautious and always check them first.

This was a highlight for us. Surrounded by beautiful mountains. Rob Roy’s glacier walk was near by and brilliant. Fords needed to be crossed which were easy - many were dry - but no doubt highly changeable depending on the weather. Nice response by farmers to a critical comment earlier about farming techniques. Toilets clean
Scenery was/is great. Disappointing though to see so many stock animals actually in the river and creeks with effluent not only in the water but along both shores. Best practice is to fence all stock animals out of and away from waterways to keep from degrading the water quality, natural embankments and stream bed environment. In addition this river feeds Lake Wanaka, where all lakeside communities get their drinking water.
Stock owner - come on, lift your game. This is not a good look, this is your stewardship and you should be doing more to protect the health of the local communities.
This was our favorite site. The road up was long but spectacular. We saw lambs galour, baby calves just born and the trip to the site was amazing. The site has drop toilets, no water. It has one undercover seating area.
The river running past so beautiful. The walk was closed to the glacier but when opened again will be amazing. There are other walks as alternatives. We were there in October. Check as they close the road soon after due to lambing season being in full swing.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
